I want to use obfs4 proxy to connect tor through it. It is not a Tor Browser. I know that Tor Browser provides options to use built-in bridges or request them online, but to use it in tor daemon I need to manually request them from bridges.torproject.org and copy them to /etc/tor/torrc. Maybe tor daemon has a built-in bridges? Or script to request them automatically? Thanks in advance!

Sadly, getting bridges from bridges.torproject.org automatically to torrc is not possible without some kind of automation. As for what can be done, you have these options:

  • Make a program that solves captchas (you can use "captcha solving services" for that, just google it and you'll find a bunch of sites that can do that) for you and sets the bridges to torrc config for you.
  • Get gmail or riseup (don't even bother) email and send an email to [email protected] through the script that parses the response and sets the bridges in the config.

Anyhow, you'll need to create a script like that yourself, since I've never heard of anything like that done before.

Sadly, no. It's a Tor Browser feature only.
